Eddie Rambeau comments on a YouTube video of Little Pattie's version: This is the first time I not only heard this but was even aware that it was recorded by someone else other than myself. Thanks for posting. What a surprise. Ed Rambeau
Pennsylvanian singer Eddie Rambeau (b.1943, real surname Fluri, aka Ed) had some regional hits and a minor national hit with Concrete And Clay (1965, #35 USA YouTube), produced by Crewe and arranged by Calello. It was a cover version of a current hit by British band Unit Four Plus Two (#1 UK, #35 USA).
The co-writer: Bud Rehak, a regular songwriting partner, had been Rambeau's manager and accompanist since the earliest days of his career in his hometown of Hazelton, Pennsylvania.
As an arranger, Charles Calello contributed to the sound of major 60s group The Four Seasons,along with Crewe, their producer. Callelo had been a member of The Four Lovers, as the group was originally called, and rejoined on bass in 1965. Both Crewe and Calello had distinguished careers with numerous major artists.
Rambeau, Rehak and Crewe wrote Diane Renay's hit Navy Blue (1964, #6 USA). Renay's follow-up record Kiss Me Sailor (#29), was written by Rambeau & Rehak. Both records were produced by Crewe and arranged by Calello (same as on Rambeau's Concrete And Clay).
